Google Trends for Websites: Compare Site Popularity

So how popular is your site? The newly launched Google Trends for Websites lets you view how popular your favorite websites are and also compares and ranks site visitation across geographies, and related websites and searches.

You can check out many other popular services like Alexa, Compete and Quantcast which do a similar analytics profile of websites using various parameters like US traffic, toolbars stats etc.. But Google could be in a more advantageous position to give more accurate statistics.

The main advantage Google has is that most web browsers use Google toolbars, most webmasters use Google Analytics and combine that with Google search and click statistics, site search statistics and Google Trends data – it seems Google should have a better idea than any other analytical service when comparing your sites traffic profile.

So check you own website profile and what do you see. Note that The daily unique visitors count is hidden, but if you know your traffic and compare your site with other sites, you can get a good idea, like their traffic is double your traffic, 10 times your traffic or 1/10 of it. Explore the audiences of specific websites with Trends for Websites now.
